Over Fonda Vela Hotel
Natuur is waar het hier om gaat. Het hotel is gelegen in het regenwoud, waar het verfrissende klimaat ervoor zorgt dat men het er "eeuwig lente" noemt. Het hotel is gebouwd met de natuur in het achterhoofd. Zo laten de grote ramen in de kamers de natuur naar binnen komen en zorgt de 1400 m hoogte voor een prachtig uitzicht. In de omgeving zijn natuurpaden te vinden waar je mooie vogels tegen kunt komen en het beroemde Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve ligt op 2 kilometer afstand.

Een bezoek aan het Monteverde Nevelwoud is als een sprookje. Het bos wordt dan ook wel ‘het sprookjesbos van Costa Rica’ genoemd. De geheimzinnige mist die altijd in dit woud hangt, zorgt voor een mysterieuze sfeer.
"Do NOT make any reservation with this hotel. Total SCAM"
I made a reservation to go to Costa Rica. We were looking forward to this amazing trip, however my partner got really sick to travel. We had to cancel our trip. We had a doctor note from the hospital for the cancellation. We had done our reservation through Expedia. Expedia was very understanding of the situation and helped cancelling our trip. The other hotels canceled our reservation with no issue. However, Hotel Fonda Vela did NOT care about the situation, ignored the doctors note, and decline to refund our future hotel reservation. They charged for the reservation we did not stay. Total scam. Maiti was the front desk personnel who declined to refund. Horrible customer service. We will reschedule and go to Costa Rica in the very near future. Definitely, not staying at this hotel. There are many great places to stay, this is NOT one of them anymore.
"Beautiful Hotel but a Bit Far from Downtown"
We stayed at the Hotel Fonda Vela in February 2017. We loved this hotel. The rooms were very spacious and the staff was nice and accommodating. The room size was huge for us at that point of our trip because we had just come from Manuel Antonio where we squeezed into a tiny room. The hotel room did not have air conditioning but we did not need it as it was cloudy and cool almost every day. The hotel grounds are absolutely beautiful and massive. There are a couple of great hiking trails that you can take right from outside your room door. The only reason this hotel does not get a full five stars is because of its location. It is quite far from downtown so going to and from (on the bumpy dirt road) after a meal and drinks, night after night, was a bit difficult for us. On the plus side, the hotel is super close to the Cloud Forest Reserve which you should definitely not miss if you visit.
"Beautiful and Tranquil"
The room we had was beautiful and had a west facing view an on a clear day you can see a partial view of the Pacific. The room was huge, had beautiful dark wood floors, high ceilings, and lots and lots of windows. The concept here was to allow as much light into the room as possible and use less electricity to light it. The bath had a tub and shower. They were older and needed some repair but were clean and functional. A safe is included although its fairly small. The views were nice and of the open areas below us to the rainforest and beyond. The restaurant offered a nice variety on their menu for breakfast including local eats like rice and beans, plantain, fresh fruits (watermelon, papaya, and pinapple). Fresh omelets were made to order with a variety of fillings such as onions, ham, mushrooms and more upon request. Though the rooms are nice and furnished well, but they run on the cool side and it gets cold. There is no heat that I could find but they offer warm blankets.The one thing that I didn't enjoy was the fact that they ask that you remove your shoes while in your room. That is fine but then you are walking in socks on a wood floor and its slippery and your feet get cold. It would be great if they offered some sort of a "hospital like slipper" at check in to use while in the rooms. Overall I was very happy with my stay. The room was amazing in design and concept and the gourds well kept. I would recommend this property if you plan to stay in Monte Verde.
"Interesting place with some improvements needed"
We stayed here for 3 nights and having read some pretty negative reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a ground floor junior suite which was huge! It was clean, views over the garden and very comfortable. The bathroom needs a revamp, but it wasn't bad. We were very unfortunate to have our trip coincide with some horrendous weather. The rooms needed a mat to wipe feet on and a mat to put dirty boots on. There was nothing in the room to give us information on the hotel and the area. We did a great bird tour with Rosie who was very knowledgeable and certainly didn't rush us! We saw and learned lots. The receptionists were very helpful, informative and good in helping us booking tours and cabs into town. Food was really good and the staff were fantastic. We enjoyed our evenings on the veranda watching the amazing sunsets with cocktail in hand! A few alterations here and there but on the whole it was a good stay.
"Rather basic place with lots of scope for improvement."
The location was quite nice, but the parking one big pool of mud. Shoes off at the door but nowhere to put them and no room slippers. Bathroom antiquated, with a leaking tap, and in need of renovation. While a breakfast-to-go was offered (and requested specifically for 07:00 in order to be in time for a nearby guided tour) we had to wait until 07:15 to receive a rather underwhelming breakfast box. Also the food in the hotel was disappointing, and their Margarita essentially undrinkable due to the surplus of salt. Some of the staff was visibly trying to make something of the situation but the overall experience was rather average. Given the location it could be so much better.
